Job Announcement Text: 

The NAOJ (National Astronomical Observatory of Japan) ALMA Project invites applications for a Project Researcher (equivalent to postdoctoral researcher) for ALMA Joint Scientific Research Program to conduct the research project “Study of activities of nearby galaxies with atoms and molecules” (started from April 1, 2021) using ALMA data (including archival data). The successful candidate will spend 100% of their time for this project in collaboration with Professor Takano at Nihon University (Koriyama-city, Fukushima, Japan). The successful candidate is required (1) to publish one first-author paper per year, and (2) to submit one ALMA proposal per year. The successful candidate may supervise students for the purpose of carrying out this project.

Applicants must have a Doctoral degree or equivalent in a relevant field. The successful candidate will be employed by NAOJ, and will be stationed at Nihon University. In case the PI of the project (Professor Takano) moves to another university or institute, the successful candidate is expected to accompany the PI. However, if such an arrangement is deemed difficult by the new university/institute, the successful candidate will be relocated to NAOJ in Mitaka and continue the proposed research project.

See below for further information.

Term of Appointment:

In principle, the term of employment is until March 31, 2024, including the probation period of 6 months. The starting date is negotiable, but as soon as reasonably possible after the job offer has been accepted. If the successful candidate had been employed by the National Institutes of Natural Sciences (NINS, which is an executive institute that manages NAOJ) within 6 months retroactively from the starting date, the term will be set so that the total employment period does not exceed ten years. Any researcher who has been employed as an NAOJ Project Research Fellow or a Researcher (Part-time Contract Employee) for a total of five or more years is not eligible to apply for this position.
